  • Drug Overdose Facts
  • Benzodiazepines such as Valium are actually more commonly abused than opiate pharmaceuticals, which are responsible for 32% of visits to the emergency department.
  • Because prescription drug seekers frequent open houses to steal drugs, homeowners should be storing their prescription drugs in a location where they cannot be accessed by those seeking to steal them.
  • During 2009, an estimated 760,000 people in the United States aged 12 or older used Ecstasy in the month prior to being surveyed.
  • Canadian-produced Ecstasy imported into the U.S. sometimes contains methamphetamine or other dangerous substances which introduces a whole new set of risks and consequences for users.
  • An average alcoholic drink will take about 10 hours for the average person to process. The more alcohol that is consumed, the greater the rise in blood alcohol content.

Outpatient Treatment

Drug or alcohol treatment programs which are delivered on an outpatient basis are available to addicted individuals who have circumstances which prevent them from being able to take part in an inpatient treatment facility. An outpatient substance abuse treatment program delivers many of the same services as an inpatient program, but allows for flexibility as opposed to an inpatient drug or alcohol rehabilitation facility where the individual is required to stay and reside at the rehab center until the treatment process is complete. Outpatient drug treatment is also offered for individuals who have already gone through residential or inpatient treatment but require a thorough aftercare program which will offer additional support and therapy to help them avoid relapse.

Self Pay (Out of Pocket)

Self payment drug rehabilitation programs are a great alternative to other types of rehab facilities i.e. private medical insurance and state funded programs. People who are able to attend self payment programs pay for their entire rehab process out of pocket. Keep in mind though, this does not mean that they will not have access to financial assistance if needed. It just means that self payment is their primary method of covering the cost of their drug treatment program. In order to learn more about self payment programs, contact a drug treatment facility and inquire as to their payment options. It is a good idea to contact several facilities so that you have an understanding of your choices regarding treatment options and payment options.

Private or Personal Health Insurance

When somebody is addicted to drugs or alcohol and is looking for help, many effective substance abuse treatment programs accept private health insurance. Whereas some outpatient and short term programs accept private health insurance, far more effective drug rehab centers which require an inpatient or residential stay for at least 90 days are also an available option. These programs which accept private health insurance can vary in terms of treatment curriculum, but those people who are covered by private health insurance are fortunate enough to have financial assistance when it comes to paying for a drug rehabilitation facility. For additional information, speak with with an addiction specialist at a drug treatment program in your area to see which programs your private health insurance will cover.

Accepts Military Insurance (E.G., Va, Tricare)

Military health insurance typically refers to TRICARE and is a commonly accepted insurance for specific drug treatment centers. A drug rehab that accepts military insurance will usually accept most other types of insurance as well. TRICARE commonly covers detoxification, rehab and outpatient treatment.
